The Swinetaur is a large enemy that appears in Veteran-tier or harder expeditions in the Warrens. This amalgamation of Swinefolk and centaur operates like a jousting knight, creating distance between itself and the party before charging at them, delivering a powerful blow with its spear to either the entire party at once, or to the frontmost hero - the force from such an impact is enough to send one flying.

Behavior[edit | edit source]

The Swinetaur can inflict massive AOE damage, topped off with high HP and high protection status. However, it is extremely position-dependent, as its hardest-hitting attacks require it to charge at its enemies from the back ranks. Typically, it will start by using Trot Retreat to fall back to the rear, and then following up with Boar Rush or Pig Spear the next turn. Generally, you should try to stun him if you can, then quickly kill off the other enemies and destroy their corpses. Without anything to retreat behind, the Swinetaur will be trapped in the front ranks and forced to use its comparatively-weak Crunching Backhand.
